Cabaret Queen She was so brave and Paul was so brave. He did what he set out to do. She jumped out of her skin and I don't think she missed a fence. She got half lengths and lengths where it mattered. Paul said she hadn't one iota left. It was a last gasp win and being so brave it would have been hard to lose it but it's tough on the runner-up too, who ran a cracker. I would have taken a draw coming off the stand as I thought we were beaten. She went to the Munster National last year but she had a very hard race there and it wouldn't be my first thought now to go back for the Munster National. I'd rather pick something a little further away and give her an easy time as she had a tough tough race. Going back into another handicap might be tough and I'm going to look at graded races or conditions races for her.

Gunfire Reef My mother thought he came out of Tipperary well and decided to take the gamble and come here. If he comes out of this well, he might go to Cork tomorrow. He won easily there but it will still take a bit out of him, although my mother is a fair judge of that and I'll leave it up to her. It is the first winner I've ridden for my brother Anthony so it's a great family affair.

Peregrine Run Everyone will be thrilled with him. Everyone in the yard is massively involved with him. To go and win 17 races is unbelievable. He is a credit to everyone. He idled a bit going down to the last and then he picked up a bit from the back of it. That's him, I suppose, he doesn't do much when he gets to the front. That's why he is able to run so often. He minds himself too. He got away with it (the ground) today. When I got out of the car and it was raining I was getting a bit disappointed. We have him since a young horse and it's a fair achievement for what he has done. I think he is not finished winning yet. He'll definitely have an entry for the Galway Plate, but come Galway midweek the ground always gets a bit soft for him and he is going to probably have top weight this year.
